You can produce professional-looking diamond-shaped stitch holes in your leather with this quality pricking iron from Oka, a leathercraft tool manufacturer from Japan. This tool's sharp and tempered prongs allow it to pierce leather neatly and smoothly. This tool also includes a non-slip handle for greater grip and comfort when in use. Create unique stitching patterns by punching stitch holes in your leather with this tool and a reverse diamond hole punch (available separately).
This 3-prong leather stitch punch is ideal for punching diamond-shaped stitch holes, in short, straight edges of leather, with the holes slanting to give your leathercraft creations a beautiful, distinctive look.

Please note that this tool's prongs are highly tempered, which makes them strong but slightly brittle, thus overstressed prongs break off rather than bend. This is by design, allowing the prongs to snap off rather than bend, as bent prongs could potentially damage your leatherwork by generating permanent uneven stitch holes if the bent prongs go unnoticed.
Please keep in mind that the professional nature of this product necessitates extra attention. Always use a soft-headed hammer (never a metal hammer) and gently tap it into your leatherwork. When removing, always take this tool straight out of your leatherwork, never move it side to side to release it as this might break the prongs. Please keep this tool away from other tools and other objects, and do not drop or strike it on a hard surface.
Keep out of the reach of children.
